That resolution is insane. It's hard to imagine why someone would need more than that.

You are right it is generally pretty good. In this case it is difficult to see the man in the river without cropping.

I can use DX mode for birds in flight and crop into feather detail. Sometimes I have taken a shot of a distant tree and zoomed into it to find out whether a bird of prey was sitting there or just another bird.

Thus this is about complaining on a very high level. While roughly 20 jpg/raw shots from a D800 make up 1 GB of hard drive space, it still makes sense.

My sorting out for technical reasons has become very strict unless the scene captured is sufficiently special.
